Abstract: Study of visual acuity and keratometric changes after pterygium excision surgery;PURPOSE:to study changes in visual acuity after pterygium excision surgery.;MATERIALS AND METHODS:a prospective intervational case study carried out on 50 patients having primary pterygium;; RESULT: pterygium excision surgery improved corneal astigmatism from 2-10 D pre operatively to 0.50 -3 D post operatively with improvement in visual acuity of 4 lines of snellen?s acuity chart in 36% of patients and 3 lines of snellen?s acuity chart changes in 54% of patients.;CONCLUSION:Pterygium leads to significant high corneal astigmatism, which hampers vision of the patient. Excision of pterygium leads to statistically significant reduction in astigmatism, which improves vision.
